In the instructions for the Greater RItual of the HExagram in Liber O, it says "In all cases use a conjuration first with Ararita, and next with the name of the God corresponding too the planet or sign you are dealing with."
WHat extactly this means is unclear to me. Does it mean to first perform an invking ritual of the Hexagram of the particular planet, as in the Golden Dawn instructions? Or....what?
Up until reviewing the various instrcutions from Liber O and the Golden Dawn, I have simply just performed the Lesser BANISHING ritual of the Hexagram, and then turned toward the direction of the Planet and traced the Hexagram using the Divine Name, traced the symbol of the planet vibreating Ararita, and then tracing and vibrating the letter of Ararita corresponding.
I can see where performing an Invoking Ritual of the Hexagram of the particular planet would be a useful addition, but that would mean performing the analysis of the key word four times, two times being one right after the other.
The instructions are less than clear!

As with the Greater Ritual of the Pentagram, where you have an option to either invoke or banish particular element, with the Greater Ritual of the Hexagram you have an option to invoke or banish particular planet or zodiacal sign.

I am not sure what do you mean by performing the analysis of the key word four times. Let's assume that you want to banish Saturn. You start with the analysis (I.N.R.I. etc.) and then you trace on all four sides (E, S, W, N) the same Hexagram, in this case Hexagram of Saturn (Liber O gives you examples of both invoking and banishing Hexagrams for each planet). Just in case, to clarify further, this Hexagram starts by tracing the first triangle from the uppermost point down towards left, while the second triangle starts from the lowermost point and up towards right. When you look at the illustration in LIber O it will be clear. You vibrate Ararita and then the divine name associated with the particular planet. In this case that would be YHVH ALHIM (or Yehovah Elohim if you prefer). So then, once again and fully: ARARITA YHVH ALHIM. It is customary although I am sure there are variant options to trace the appropriate planetary sign while vibrating and you trace it in the centre of your Hexagram. You do the same Hexagram, same vibrating formula ("conjuration" as Liber O says) and same planetary sign on all four sides (E, S, W, N). And then you finish with the analysis of the word. Thus twice: once at the beginning of your ritual, once at the end.

One more thing, it is suggested that if you invoke a planet (or an element, with Greater Pentagram), it is advisable to banish after the specific work is done. Otherwise you may create and imbalance. No reverse procedure is necessary if you start with banishing.

Hope this helps.

What you are proposing is that when one performs the Greater Invoking Ritual of the Hexagram, the Hexagram is traced in four quarters? I had been performing the GRP by tracing the Hexagram in the direction of the planets location in the zodiac at the time of working.
Essentially my question was concerning what Crowley meanbt by "first give a conjuration with Ararita" I wasn't sure if this meant to simply vibrate Ararita (or give recite a conjuration in verse with Ararita) or to perform the LRH, which I was interpreting as possibly being "a conjuration with Ararita."

The Golden Dawn instructions, when invoking a planetary force, are to first perform the lesser nvoking Hexagram ritual, but tracing each of the four Hexagrams from the angle of the particular planet you wish to invoke, then to turn towards the direction of the planet at the time of the working and trace the Greater Hexagram of that planet, vibrating the appropriate divine names.
So I had considered the possibility that, having already performed the LBRH, and having thus twice performed the Analysis of the key word, should I then perform the Analysis of the key word again before and after performing the LIRH of the particluar planet with which I am working before proceeding with the GIRP proper.

Crowley’s Liber O states “The Greater Ritual of the Hexagram To invoke or banish planets or zodiacal signs. The Hexagram of Earth alone is used. Draw the hexagram, beginning from the point which is attributed to the planet you are dealing with. (See “777” col. lxxxiii).”

“For the Zodiac use the hexagram of the planet which rules the sign you require (“777,”col.cxxxviii); but draw the astrological sigil of the sign, instead of that of the planet.”

The use of the Zodiac for the hexagram may have come from Crowley or from another Golden Dawn document that I may not be aware or missed. Pentagrams are what were used for summoning the Zodiac in the Golden Dawn.

However, Regardie and Crowley may not have had the full procedures used by the Golden Dawn and Alpha Omega. Recently there was published Mather’s Last Secret: The Rituals and Teachings of the Alpha Omega. Mather’s Last Secret contains the revised version of the Golden Dawn Rituals for the Alpha Omega(Neophyte to Adeptus Minor) and 40 something pages that reveals minor details of the Hexagram and Pentagram rituals that were not in Regardie’s Golden Dawn nor in Aleister Crowley’s Liber O. I would not buy this book unless you are interested in the later developments of the Golden Dawn, which in some ways are minor. The book was worth it for me due to these Hexagram and Pentagram rituals.

http://www.amazon.com/Mathers-Last-Secret-Rituals-Teachings/dp/0982352166/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1308120368&sr=8-1

Mather’s Last Secret shows the Greater Hexagram Ritual in the four different triangle forms which ties to David Griffin’s Ritual Magic Manual. This book by David Griffin uses the unpublished Alpha Omega material as of 1999. I cannot decipher which are the Alpha Omega’s material and changes made by David Griffin. The Ritual Magic Manual is out of print. Today, I would not purchase this used because of the high cost unless you’re a Golden Dawn student that wants every publication made. When I first got this book in 1999, I thought I wasted $49.00 dollars, but years and years I was able to understand its use. The book is repetitive and long winded, but I consider this book to be the 777 of Golden Dawn pentagram and hexagram rituals. He gives all elemental pentagram rituals, the 12 pentagram rituals of the zodiac, all 7 Planetary Greater Hexagrams, all ten Hexagram rituals for the sephiroth and other items in the Golden Dawn tradition.

The four elemental forms of the Hexagram were derived from the magic circle in Mather’s Key of Solomon (See Plate One Figure 2). This shows all four of the two triangle variations of the Hexagram. This is used in the Lesser Hexagram ritual but was also used in the Greater Hexagram Rituals of the Alpha Omega.

Griffin’s Greater Hexagram Ritual uses the four elemental forms of the Hexagram (like the lesser hexagram ritual) the difference is you visualize the appropriate Hebrew letter of Ararta, vibrate Ararita tracing the Hexagram and trace the planetary seal in center vibrating the divine word like AL for Jupiter for all four directions in all four forms for each element. A fifth- representing Spirit- Hexagram in the regular Earth Form is used in the direction of the planet or the direction of the planets in the Vault of Adepts. Griffin uses the Lotus Wand for tracing the invoking, the adept picks the day or night house color of the zodiac or uses sidereal astrology where the planet is located in the Zodiac. An Air dagger is used to banish all five Hexagrams. The Sun Invoking ritual hurts my mind because all 6 directions would be used 5 times. The Fire, Water, Air and Earth Hexagrams would make this more confusing for the Sun.

For the Zodiac Pentagram Rituals, Griffin traces the same pentagram of a zodiac sign such as Taurus in all four directions-East to North. The fifth Pentagram is traced in the direction of the Zodiac or South for Taurus, since Earth is in the South for the Hexagram ritual. For Taurus when tracing the pentagram vibrating the Enochian name, Ziracah and tracing the sign of Taurus vibrate YHHV of the twelve banners of YHVH.

Griffin provides an evocation of Saturn for Agiel and Zazel. He traces two regular Earth Hexagrams for Saturn in the direction of Saturn. One is to call Agiel and the other to call Zazel. Ararita is vibrated David then trace the hexagram and vibrates the name of Agiel in the first and Zazel in the second when tracing the Saturn glyph. These two Earth Hexagrams evocations are repeated over the triangle using the black end of the Lotus Wand. He then uses two Saturn banishing Earth Hexagrams over the triangle of art.

Mather’s Last Secret reveals to summon the Qliphoth use the reverse of the fire hexagram which is 2 triangles upside down. It also discusses the direction of the winds for the element pentagram rituals.

David Griffin’s Golden Dawn/Alpha Omega is extremely upset that Mather’s Last Secret by Nick Farrell was published. This material published was originally in the possession of Gerald Gardner. David Griffin claims that his order is directly descended from Mathers’ Alpha Omega and the Ahathöor Temple No. 7 is still operating in Paris, France. Griffin also is associated with the Great Rite which is “an Italian Pagan tradition deriving from high Italian nobility, as does l'Arte Eccelsa, is inherently far more exclusive than any "Italian witchcraft tradition" deriving from the folk magic of peasantry.” This man, David Griffin, constantly impresses and astonishes me.

wolf354,

The reviewer is associated with David Griffin. If you look at all his reviews Frater WA gives David Griffin’s Golden Dawn book 5 stars and Pat Zaleweski’s and Nick Farrell’s books one stars. This is because David Griffin’s order is feuding against them.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/cdp/member-reviews/A26K8E0ZP64PFW/ref=cm_pdp_rev_all?ie=UTF8&sort_by=MostRecentReview

The reviewer is upset Nick Farrell is revealing their rituals which have been available in manuscripts to the public in certain collections owned by people who are not in the order. Nick plans to publish another book that will reveal other Alpha Omega material. He will also be writing a book about the life of Mathers of the Golden Dawn, they are upset he will might reveals details such as he never consummated with his wife, but had an affair with someone else.

This reviewer and Griffin’s order may even be upset if the real 6=5 and 7=4 rituals by Mathers are ever published.

I will admit if you own Regardie’s Golden Dawn, the majority of the material is in Mather’s Last Ritual. But if you are a Golden Dawn student who loves detail in the most minor form, you will appreciate the value of Mather’s Last Secret. The book contains Hexagram and Pentagram ritual details that I have never seen before. If the book goes out of print, the price may rise to be very steep.

Golden Dawn Rituals and Commentaries by Pat Zalewski will explain many diagrams in the ceremonies of the Golden Dawn. To me it is a great book, but to Frater WA it is not.

Frater WA gives The Golden Dawn: The Unpublished Lectures of the Hermetic Order of the A.O. a one star. I will admit the book is poorly edited and executed, but it reveals certain 6=5 document that is not available and has been confirmed as accurate. A Golden Dawn collector would appreciate this.

Here are blogs that show how upset the Alpha Omega is at the publication of the Alpha Omega material. The second one depicts poor Nick Farrell a Borg from Star Trek.

http://hermetic-golden-dawn.blogspot.com/2011/06/moto-peregrin-launches-flame-war.html

Here is another post reflecting how Griffin is correcting other Golden Dawn groups that disagree with him in the commentary below.

I don't know if this forum's rules forbid posts which basically just boil down to "I detest person x, I wish they would just go away and die" so I'm not going to write anything about David Griffin.

What I will say though is that this "Mathers' Last Secret" book sounds very interesting and something I should buy, and I hope that one day Mathers' versions of 6=5 and 7=4 rituals are published. I shall check out the unpublished lectures book too, so thanks for mentioning that.

Originally, I wanted to point out that Mathers’ Last Secret has Greater Hexagram ritual diagram that ties to David Griffin’s The Ritual Magic Manual. This confirmed my perspective on how the Greater Hexagram should be done.

David Griffin’s The Ritual Magic Manual is a book that is the 777 of Golden Dawn pentagram and hexagram rituals. Lon Milo DuQuette praises the book in dusk jacket. I use this book as a source constantly for Hexagram and Pentagram Rituals for every scenario: zodiac, planetary, elemental and sephiroth. His book fills gaps that Regardie’s Golden Dawn has on this subject. It might incorporate Alpha Omega material that Regardie and Crowley may not have had access to. He places Sigillum Dei Aemeth on top of the Vault of Adepts to devise his planetary ritual system.

I study his magic system which I find consistent and try not to take his blog activities seriously. When I read his internet activity, I find them entertaining and amusing. Perhaps he is like Marcello Motta on certain levels. On the other hand, he claims to be a Magus of the Alpha Omega and I certainly admire his Magus Wand. Wish there were bigger pictures to see how the wand is constructed, so the Hebrew and colors are clear on all angles.

http://david-griffin-golden-dawn-magus.blogspot.com/2010/07/crucible-wand-of-power.html

Personally, the objective is to read, to study and use if applicable all published material available on the Golden Dawn. This is why I do not care on the matter of different Golden Dawn groups. I just wanted to point out to wolf354 the motivation of why that reviewer gave Mathers’ Last Rituals a one star review.

I did not mean to recommend The Unpublished Lectures of the Hermetic Order of the A.O. is a book worth owning. You will find the work lacking and a reproduction of Enochian material already available. It is disappointing on many levels, but if you want to own scans of A.O. material and a Golden Dawn collector who wants everything then you should consider owning it. Surprisingly, I agree with Frater WA’s one star review. The 6=5 paper deals with the Seven Branched candlestick which deals with 7 music notes and the planets. From reading Paul Foster Case works, he probably had this document since he includes music notes in his teachings. Here is a review:

http://nick-farrell.blogspot.com/2010_08_08_archive.html

Golden Dawn Rituals and Commentaries by Pat Zalewski is a book that is probably more satisfying to own than the one mentioned above. It restores diagrams such as the Tree of Life with Daath included in the 4=7. This diagram is not in Regardie’s Golden Dawn because the Stella Matutina omitted this.

As far as the 6=5 and 7=4 rituals, there are those written by Mathers which are not published. The 6=5 and 7=4 written by Robert William Felkin of the Stella Matutina are published in the Secret Inner Order Rituals of the Golden Dawn by Pat Zalewski. There is also Waite’s and possibly Paul Foster Case’s version.

I spent days reading Regardie’s Golden Dawn Rituals 0=0 to 5=6, then I tried to read and connect Zalewski’s book for 6=5 to 7=4. They were not consistent in terms of tarot card descriptions, grade signs and other details. I made an inquiry and I was correct on some levels. The publisher, Falcon, not Pat Zalewski purposely hacked parts of 6=5 and 7=4 rituals in Secret Inner Order Rituals of the Golden Dawn, such as the oaths. This is probably why Zalewski did not seek to use Falcon as a publisher in the future. The 1988 Falcon published version of Felkin’s Stella Matutina 6=5 and 7=4 are not entirely correct.

Here is a link to Book of the Tomb: Flying Roll No XVII. This is an unpublished Alpha Omega document that is now an e-book.

http://www.auroraaurea.com/free-ebooks

Also this is link I already posted on an Enochian thread. This shows a project Cicero’s Golden Dawn is working on. They are presenting Wescott’s Enochian tablets that were in the archives of the SRIA. If Wescott had not left the Golden Dawn, the way these tablets were constructed might have been incorporated in the Golden Dawn. A magazine article should be published in Hermetic Virtue and a possibly a book too.

The use of the Zodiac for the hexagram may have come from Crowley or from another Golden Dawn document that I may not be aware or missed. Pentagrams are what were used for summoning the Zodiac in the Golden Dawn.

However, Regardie and Crowley may not have had the full procedures used.

I needed to correct my statement for Liber O regarding Zodiac Hexagrams. Griffin’s Ritual Magic Manual does say Zodiac Hexagrams are used in the Alpha OmegaGolden Dawn. His book does not give an illustrated diagram example, but it states:

“The Zodiacal Rituals in this chapter employ Greater Invoking and Banishing Rituals of the Pentagram. Under most circumstances, this is a satisfactory method of Invocation, since each Sign of the Zodiac has an affinity with the Elements known in Astrology as Elemental Triplicity. Each Zodiacal Sign has an additional affinity, however, with one of the seven Traditional Planets according to the Planetary Rulership of each Sign.

To emphasize the Planetary, rather than the Elemental, nature of the Sign, the Magician may therefore alternatively invoke Zodiacal Forces by employing Greater Invoking and Banishing Rituals of the Hexagram for the Planet ruling the Sign. The Invocation of Zodiacal Forces inside the Vault of the Adepti is one example where Hexagrams would be more appropriate. Hexagrams are preferable in the Vault due to its Planetary nature, since the Forces in this highly charged magical chamber reflect through its seven Planetary walls.

Trace the Hexagrams in the King's Scale color attributed to the Zodiacal Sign, with the Sign's glyph traced in its center in the Flashing Color. The colors used in the Pentagram Rituals in this chapter are correct. Employ the Names and Sigils from the Zodiacal Hierarchy in the same fashion as included in the Pentagram Rituals in this chapter.”

Under Griffin’s system an example of a Taurus Hexagram would be tracing a Venus Hexagram vibrating the Enochian name, Ziracah and tracing the sign of Taurus vibrate YHHV of the twelve banners of YHVH.

However, an alternative would be to vibrate Ararita when tracing the Venus Hexagram and YHHV when tracing the Taurus glyph.

There are no Golden Dawn publications that I have seen that shows a Hexagram diagram with a zodiac sign in the center instead of a planet. I reviewed the Complete Magical System of the Golden Dawn, the Golden Dawn, the Cicero’s publications and so on.

Remember the original Golden Dawn documents were copied and returned by members. This may have created different variations so Crowley may have had a version that prescribed Hexagrams for the Zodiac. Also the 5=6, 6=5 and 7=4 material was probably not fully developed when Crowley was in the Golden Dawn. It was probably wise he went on his own because he may have had to wait decades to receive this material.

ON THE VAULT OF ADEPTS

My previous post I posted a link to Book of the Tomb: Flying Roll No XVII. This is an unpublished Alpha Omega flying roll that provides the correct coloring of the Vault of Adepts. Regardie did not provide this completely because the complete document belonged to the Alpha Omega not the Stella Matutina.

http://www.auroraaurea.com/free-ebooks

A foot note states about flashing colours to the vault on this document “This is the lazy person's method of creating a vault quickly using flashing colours. The result lacks the aesthetics of a properly constructed vault and can make someone feel quite unwell. This might explain why Brodie-Innes was so keen on turning the light in his vault off. Fortunately his advice was not taken in London, France or in the Stella Matutina.”

John Broddie Innes was one of the key leaders of the Alpha Omega and stayed loyal to the Mathers. He certainly has not had the attention he rightfully deserves. Without him the true colors of the Vault may not have survived. The only two popular students the Alpha Omega - post Golden Dawn break up- produced are Paul Foster Case and Dion Fortune. It’s ironic they were forced to discontinue being part of the Alpha Omega by Moina Mathers.

TWO OTHER GOLDEN DAWN BOOKS

Ritual Use of Magical Tools: Resources for the Ceremonial Magician by Chic and Tabatha Cicero does provide diagrams of the four elemental directions for invoking and banishing hexagrams for all seven planets. The book outlines this as a Lesser Hexagram Rituals for each of the planets. The Lesser Hexagram Ritual start with the Qabalistic cross, Lesser Hexagram ritual (e.g. Saturn only) four element forms only vibrate ARARITA and the LVX signs. This presents Golden Dawn rituals in a simplified adaptable form and is good learning book.

http://www.amazon.com/Ritual-Use-Magical-Tools-Ceremonial/dp/1567181430/ref=sr_1_6?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1309063528&sr=1-6

The other book does not relate to the hexagram ritual but if you are a die hard Golden Dawn student The Inner Order Teachings of the Golden Dawn by Pat Zaleweski should be obtained before it goes out of print. This contains various papers and colored diagrams. There are papers written by Mathers such as The Order of Ritual of the Heptagram.

If you want to see a correct production of the Golden Dawn vault from the Book of the Tomb: Flying Roll No XVII.

This blog shows how the colors should look for most of the planets and a glimpse at the vault.

http://therubyroseandgoldencross.blogspot.com/

This Alpha Omega flying roll provides the correct coloring of the Vault of Adepts. It has been published in Nick Farrell’s King Over The Water. Regardie did not provide this completely because the complete document belonged to the Alpha Omega not the Stella Matutina. Steffi Grant did produce a seven sided vault with different colors in the new edition of Hidden Lore. I am not sure if she had access to the document mentioned and the colors are muted and not attractive in the reproduction.

As for the real Vault of the Adepts not the symbolic Golden Dawn, Jean Pascal Ruggiu alludes on facebook it really does exist and a miniature model is produced. It certainly interests me there are European Rosicrucians orders that guard these secrets.

AdoniaZanoni,

Thank you for the link to the blog.  I do wish there were more photos of it.  As for the miniature model, it can be purchased here:

http://www.lostwonder.org/Folio_Tomb.html

I've had this bookmarked for quite some time but had forgotten about it until now.  I'll go ahead and order it as a delightful distraction from yet another outbreak of the incurable "sickness", magickal bibliophilia.  Symptoms include: insatiable appetite for pre-publication offers.  Coupled with the inevitable, impatient desire for the sight of the postman bringing boxes of books and the beautiful blissful moment of opening the talesmanic cover, inhaling that sweet scent while my eyes deliver the medicine, brand name "Wyrd Words", directly to my brain.  Only then, for a short while, do the symptoms subside.  Side effects may include jokes and occasional sillyness.  Use care when operating upgraded forum software. 😛  Anyway, looking forward to putting the model Vault together and playing with those "Paper dolls of Father Rosenkreutz, Francis Bacon, Rene Descartes, Paracelsus, John Dee and other luminaries."  ;D

I was aware of  Aaron Leitch's video. The problem with the video is the planetary walls have the wrong colors and will mislead those who are not aware of the correct flying row Book of the Tomb: Flying Roll No XVII. That is why is you scroll down the Ruby and Golden Cross blog you will see the correct colors for Mars,Moon,Mercury and Venus. My point was this flying was recently brought to attention and Leitch did not have access to it. It can be downloaded at http://www.auroraaurea.com/free-ebooks or an extended version is in Nick Farrell's King Over Water.

http://www.lostwonder.org/Folio_Tomb.html

N.O.X. thanks for the link, I will certainly purchase the historic recreation of the Vault. Now if only they would make a minature model for the Golden Dawn Vault of Adepts with paper dolls of Aleister Crowley, Florence Farr, MacGregor Mathers, Arthur Waite to play with.

As for the closest published version of the Golden Dawn Rituals Crowley went through, R.G. Torrens' Secret Rituals of the Golden Dawn would contain the Neophyte to Philosophus and Nick Farrell's Mather Last Secret would contain the Portal and Adeptus Minor. This version of the Portal is different than Regardie's published version.

I thought Griffins Ritual Magick Manual was a ridiculous waste of paper personally, considering that each set of elementary, planetary and etc ritual follows the same format. It would have been much simpler to simply make some kind of chart system with an example ritual...all this spoon feeding and spelling everything out step by step, its a bit asinine. One example ritual for each variation would have been sufficient. But that would have reduced his book down to about 15 pages, and you can't really make any money off of that now can you.
